Hong Kong Philharmonic under Jaap van Zweden brilliant in Beethoven Symphony No 9, finely nuanced in Mozart concerto with pianist Avan Yu

  • Hong Kong Philharmonic’s playing is buoyant and Canadian soloist Avan Yu’s articulation crystal clear in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 22
  • Orchestra and music director give a performance of Beethoven’s Ninth full of tension before choir and soloists explode in joy – as much as face masks allow
